This versatile Blueberry Breakfast Granola Crisp recipe can be served as a breakfast or a dessert! Sweet, tangy, crispy and delicious, I absolutely LOVED this low calorie dish as a healthy alternative for blueberry pie recipes. It’s SUPER easy to make, and doesn’t involve a lot of fancy ingredients, but man it’s good! Each serving has just a 4 Points, but if you are into using Splenda as a sugar substitute, swap out the sugar with 3-4 packets of Splenda and knock a Point off of each serving. You can also serve it with a scoop of Weight Watchers ice cream to jazz it up as a satisfying dessert. Though this isn’t an official one of Weight Watchers Breakfast Recipes, it’s a must have dish for any weight watcher who loves blueberry pie or fritters!
Blueberry Crisp Fritter Recipe
– 1/4 cup low-fat, ready-to-eat granola cereal
– 10 oz unsweetened frozen blueberries
– 2 1/2 tsp cornstarch
– 1/8 tsp nutmeg
– 2 tbsp sugar
– 1/4 tsp orange zest
– 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
– 1/4 tsp table salt
– 1 tsp honey
In a saucepan, combine sugar, nutmeg, frozen berries, and cornstarch in a saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring gently and frequently with a rubber spatula. Reduce to a simmer and cook until thickened – about 3 minutes. Turn off heat, stir in fresh blueberries, orange rind and salt, and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in toaster oven or dry skillet, toast granola until lightly browned, about 3 to 4 minutes.
To serve, divide blueberry mixture among 2 bowls and top with granola and drizzle each serving with ½ tsp honey.
